Safety Shall Be My Going

  • 0 Comments
  • Earth Mission Asia, OB
I recently read an article titled “Human Rights Beyond Survival” by Hermine Hayes-Klein. Her writing struck me with its obvious statements yet floored me with the reality that it is not obvious in so many instances. I found myself profoundly affected with the reality of what our team is working towards in regard to the […]

Our clinic in Kyaukkyi Myanmar is located just next to a large Baptist church run by the Hsaw Htit Baptist Association. In fact, the land and the clinical buildings belong to the Baptists. Graciously, they are allowing us free use of the facilities for at least the next 10 years. Besides their tradition of spiritual […]

  • Earth Mission Asia, World Malaria Day
April 25th is World Malaria Day. Before I started working in South-East Asia, Malaria Day would have been just a matter of statistics: “Malaria 2015:  212,000,000 new cases globally.  429,000 deaths.” Or perhaps Malaria Day would have inspired me to review a bit of esoteric medical information, knowing I would probably never use it in the […]

How to Learn a Language

  • Earth Mission Asia, Education, EMA students
Over the past several months, Earth Mission Asia (EMA)’s dream of starting a healthcare training program for practitioners in rural Myanmar has blossomed like magic. Of course, God’s plan often looks like magic so I’m sure it’s His power that I’m seeing. It’s been just a year since EMA walked through the first major door God […]
